Samsung GT-B2700 certified to be Resistant to Dust and Water
Samsung is set to launch a new rugged style candy-bar design GSM mobile phone, the GT-B2700, which has been certified to be resistant to dust and water.
The phone measures 115 x 52 x 18mm and sadly doesn’t support video calling or second camera, however the rugged appearance may attract a lot of butterfingered customers.
The GT-B2700 offers, quad-band GSM/GPRS+EDGE radio, 1.9 inch 176 x 220 pixel screen, Bluetooth 2.0, FM radio and RDS, music player, in-built altimeter and compass, 30MB of internal memory, the good old microSD slot, and a 1300 mAh battery.
With connectivity in mind, the B2700 will support EDGE / GPRS and WAP and Bluetooth v2.0.
The GT-B2700 has been tested for durability to the IP54 level which means dust particles larger than 1mm cannot enter the phone and that it is resistant to water sprays and splash.
The handset would be priced at approximately Rs 14, 230.
